The jury of the Bild-Kunst Award this year are: costume designer Susanne Roggendorf (VSK), production designers Josefine Lindner (VSK) and Josina von Minckwitz, and production design students Luisa Niederschuh (ifs) and Nele Seifert (Ludwigsburg). Since 2004, the prize has consisted of one award for the best costume design and one for the best production design. Both prizes are endowed with €2,500 each. The shortlist included 15 German feature film productions that celebrated their German premiere at Hof Film Festival.
Hannah Ebenau and Sabrina Krämer for Best Costume Design (TRÜMMERMÄDCHEN)
as well as
Yvonne Leuze for Best Setting (TRÜMMERMÄDCHEN).
Sabrina Krämer and Hannah Ebenau are being recognized for their well-researched and realized costumes of the 1940s: The overall concept of the film allows for detours into other periods, which were very sensitively and artfully inserted into the film's era without imposing themselves. The two costume designers successfully spanned an artistic spectrum of colors, patterns and jewelry, and used these creative means to depict a convincing development of the individual characters.
Yvonne Leuze's powerful vision draws the black and white world of a ruined, misogynistic society, which appears fragmentarily in the infinity of an abstract dark space. Sophisticated constructions give rise to mountains of rubble and streetscapes that explore the tightrope walk between reality and scenic reduction. In contrast, there are the elaborate and lovingly decorated sets of the "Proto" theater: a place of painful confrontation and liberating self-empowerment. From lustful to horrific, the visuality of TRÜMMERMÄDCHEN sears into the retina.
